. if the election was today, president obama has command. in battleground states from nevada, up to new hampshire and down to florida in nine battle ground states, the president is in command of this race and that's not an assessment of the polls, although he has an advantage in the polls but republicans in the romney campaign as well. that doesn't mean this race is over. there are a lot of things can happen. the debate next week. there is a recognition inside the romney campaign that governor romney needs to sort of find within him to make a better argument, a clear argument through advertising and other things. and we still have time to see him do that. gwen: and we are talking dozens of polls that we have been all reading and consuming for the last couple of weeks, to the point that people say, should we believe these polls especially when they make a uniform turn, what are you hearing about that? >> the polls are moving in the direction that jeff talked about, so there might be that type of fault or fault with another poll, but you can't ignore the can cumulative direction of all these polls.
